Anybody recommend a hang-on back skimmer or filter for a mixed reef?

I've got to temporarily move my tank to my mum's house so looking for a way to eliminate any chance of a spill (it will be on her fancy carpets!)

Thanks mate, reliable?
I would be looking at the QQ1 for my tank size but I imagine quality is similar across the range.

Works perfectly as long as you ensure the tank water level isn’t too much lower than the glass tank rim.

Cheers, am I right in thinking this thing needs manual intervention to get it going again after a power cut?

I just topped mine back up from the top and it worked fine straight away.
